Named after the lyrics of a song he heard on the radio in London, this drawing by Billy Connolly expresses his belief that the title of an artwork should come after its creation.
Billy says: "Sometimes I think it's bad to give something a title because you force the person looking at to think along those lines whereas, if you didn't give it a name, they would come to a different conclusion, a conclusion of their own and form a relationship with the drawing."
Whatever you think from looking at this extraordinary piece, its iconic and surreal black and white characters are certainly emblematic of Billy's sell-out collection Born On A Rainy Day.
Conceived while on tour in Canada in 2007, Born On A Rainy Day began on a drizzly day in Montreal when Billy impulsively brought some felt-tip pens and a sketchbook. Since then, his drawings have evolved to express complex ideas of liberation and surrealism whilst retaining his original spontaneity, humour, and fun.
